The "Imperial We"

The “Imperial We”

People always note, when they hear the Queen of England speak, that she uses ‘we’ instead of ‘I.’ The reason is that she speaks for the nation.

When you write emails or letters, try to use ‘we’ instead of ‘I.’ This encourages the reader to think of you as part of a team. Think of it as the ‘Corporate We.’
